I've had my eye on a nice pair of black split toe lace-ups made by Crockett & Jones for Brooks Brothers (the Algonquin model, I think it is). After they went on sale I tried them on and found even the "e" width painfully narrow (I usually take a normal D). I find the Alden model not particularly graceful (the top stitching is too pronounced compared to the Crockett), albeit well made. Does anyone have any suggestions for a similar model? Thanks in advance.
